Frequently Asked Questions

FAQ

What does an Electronic Trading Advisory do?

An Electronic Trading Advisory advises clients on how to best use information technology (IT) practices to achieve their specific business objectives. In order to best optimize a client’s IT resources and practices, a technology consultant would also manage and implement strategies.

Is this Service for me?

  1. Are you looking to optimize internal inefficiencies? As your Advisor, we have a unique understanding of the workings of the internal tech environment, and highlights underperforming areas.
  2.  Product development is not going as planned? Quality issues, delivery dates missed, lack of features, etc.
  3. Your current tech team is (or soon will be) no longer in the picture and you need someone to keep things going until you can hire the replacement.
  4. You are building a quantitative fund, and need advisory with the technology part.
  5. Your current operation is already using Electronic Trading, and you have different issues (execution, slippage, misses, etc)
  6. You want to coach and advise your current team to follow the best practices.
  7. You are on the Buy-side and need to implement new processes for your strategies.
  8. You are on the Sell-side and must improve latencies in order to be competitive.

What is the approach taken?

Whether you need senior leadership consulting or project-based executive expertise, our retained Advisors can provide technology-centered leadership needed to match business strategies with technology architectures.

We provide consulting and advisory services across a multitude of modern technology solutions and service requirements such as cloud hosting, software as a service (SaaS), software development, on-site and offshore team management, and more.

What are the best practices when designing HFT systems?

Depending on different factors, markets, and compliances, this may vary, but some basics will remain the same for any trading system.

The key factor here is being able to handle a big amount of incoming information, response time to external events, internal response time, and capabilities to provide the highest throughput and lowest latency.

These are the usual challenges:

  • The system must be able to handle multiple strategies, making sure that the system will not underperform as we add more strategies.
  • Order book reconstruction from different venues. If we take as an example like the forex market, there are tons of different venues and ECNs, all of them using different API and connectivity standards. The system must be able to handle those different sources and aggregate them into an internal and well-defined data structure.

Is implementation included in this service?

No. However, whatever the plan is, we can setup a specialized team to perform the implementation.

How can you help us with the hiring process?

We have a global network of specialized resources and consultants, and we can make sure the team we put together is the best fit for the project.

How the onboarding process looks like?

  1. Capture of Business operations, culture and goals.
  2. Identification of bottlenecks and improvements to be made
  3. Draft of a plan and adjustments
  4. Team setup and definition of procedures
  5. Managing the implementation
  6. Handling project budget and resources towards the final goal
  7. Maintenance, support and constant improvements

How many people work in the company?

We have a core of 6 senior consultants and a much wider reach of associates in their fields. Therefore, we ensure all the consultants working for us have had experience in a senior role within the industry to achieve this.

We widen our reach to the US and Asia too through partnerships with agencies specializing in this niche.

Is this service suitable for startups?

Absolutely. For any startup starting a business in any electronic trading field, whether within the buy-side or sell-side, or just a small hedge fund, we can certainly give you the know-how of the technology part.

We encourage startups to work with us and avoid common pitfalls that most encounter in these areas. In the end, you will save money and most importantly, time.

You will need the following:

  1. Quality Data sources

  3. Software: platforms and execution
  4. People and resources
